Best Heads of Hair in Major League Baseball
We’re all for optimal safety in the world of sports. However, we can’t help but be slightly disappointed when hats and helmets hide the glorious hair of our favorite MLB baseball players. After all, just because working their bodies into peak, World Series-winning condition might be their number one priority, growing out some great locks apparently doesn’t fall too far behind.
So, if you’re searching for some new hair inspiration, your top baseball team might be the perfect place to look. From exquisitely manicured coifs to manes that grow out and fly free, a quick peek into any dugout will provide fans with a gallery of gorgeous hair.
We could spend countless hours fawning over the best baseball flows—especially if we looked back into the sport’s hairy history. Instead, to save us some precious time, let’s look at pro baseball’s top heads of hair that have recently graced the field.
Whether he was playing for the Philadelphia Phillies or the Washington Nationals, fans didn’t have to ask twice who was walking up to the plate if it was Jayson Werth. With his flowing curls and epic beard, this 2008 World Series Champ effortlessly blends mountain man chic with a healthy dash of Midwestern charm.
If you’re lucky enough to have a full head of hair, why not have fun with it? That’s clearly the mentality of Houston Astros’ first baseman, Yuli Gurriel. From gravity-defying bleached tips to immaculate fades, this Cuba-born Olympic gold medal winner knows that he owns some amazing locks—and he’s not afraid to show it off.
He’s nicknamed “Thor” for a reason! As a current pitcher for the New York Mets, Noah Syndergaard not only has the power to strike out the best hitters in the league—fans also can’t stop soaking in views of his golden, wavy locks. That’s got to be its own special superpower, right?
He may currently be a free agent, but Hanley Rameriez, a long-time player for the Boston Red Sox and Florida Marlins, still makes a serious statement with his signature dreadlocks. His look seals him forever as a storied all-star in-fielder—and as a man with a stellar signature style.
Yes. It’s been a few years since Coco Crisp has professionally stepped foot onto the baseball diamond. Still, we’d be remiss to skip mentioning his fabled locks. Like Yuri Gurriel, this switch-hitter—who most notably played for the Oakland A’s—knows that amazing hair was grown to be shown off to adoring fans, and not hidden under a baseball cap.
For Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Matt Shoemaker, it’s all about the beard. Full and bushy, yet also well-shaped and superbly maintained, this MVP’s facial hair became so iconic that it got its own t-shirt when he was a minor league player for the Arkansas Travelers. Now, just like Shoemaker himself, his beard worked his way up into the major league spotlight.
Considering this six-time MLB All-Star recently signed one of the richest contracts ever—a cool $330 million to play with the Philadelphia Phillies—it makes sense why right fielder Bryce Harper can afford such incredible hair. This MVP flawlessly pulls off an elegant, precisely disheveled quiff with a beard that’s manicured to nothing less than pure perfection.
Before signing on with the San Diego Padres, first baseman Eric Hosmer won the 2015 World Series with the Kansas City Royals. There, he was a fan favorite not just for his award-winning talent (he won the Golden Glove trophy four times!), but also for his always on-point hairstyles. From faux hawks to low fades to hard parts, Hosmer still keeps his look sharp as ever while playing out on the West Coast.
Aside from officially have the longest last name in MLB player history, Jarrod Saltalamacchia also deserves a place in the record books just for sporting a gorgeous head of hair. Some players spend some serious dough on sharp cuts and pricey products. Instead, the hair on this former Toronto Blue Jay and Boston Red Sox player always appears to be natural and effortless.
Long hair. This pitcher for the San Francisco Giants surely don’t care. When Jeff Samardzija takes the mound, every spectator’s eye isn’t only on his fastpitch. It’s also on his signature mane. It makes you wonder if his game-time strategy includes distracting the batter with his long, wavy locks.
